Electronic Balances
May 2008
Shimadzu Scientific Instruments Inc.Request Info
COLUMBIA, Md., May 2, 2008 -- Shimadzu Scientific Instruments said its new line of 12 precision balances includes TX electromagnetic force restoration balances equipped with the UniBloc aluminum integral mass sensor and TXB electronic balances with a load-cell function, and all the products meet recent demand for intermediate-range balances with competitive performance and price.

According to the company, the TX series with UniBloc offers reliable and reproducible results, which are critical to precision balances. Shimadzu’s UniBloc is constructed from a one-piece aluminum alloy unit, replacing 70 parts found in conventional electronic balances. Unlike balances constructed with multiple springs or screws, TX balances experience less performance variation due to temperature changes and are also less susceptible to the effects of air currents, vibration or impact.

ShimadzuEBalance.jpgThe capacity of the TX series is 220 to 3200 g, with a minimum display of 0.001 to 0.01 g. The TXB series has a capacity of 200 to 6200 g and a minimum display of 0.01 to 1 g.

Shimadzu said the TX and TXB balances employ easy-to-use functions to avoid downtime. The Smart+ menu navigation keys are separated from measurement keys and arranged in the familiar up, down, left right circle for simple menu operation. The Smart setting allows users to adjust the ratio of stability and reaction speed without interrupting current measurements. Users can send data directly to their PC through the Shimadzu WindowsDirect communication function without installing extra software.

The TX/TXB top-loaded electronic balances can be used for manufacturing and quality control, as well as research and development applications in the pharmaceutical and chemical industries.
